How To Maintain Momentum in Blogging

Experiencing eLearning

Someone asked me in last week’s eLearning Freelancer Bootcamp Q&A about how I maintain my blogging momentum. I’ve been blogging since late 2006, and I’m still publishing every week. I have published over 1100 posts (about 400 “real” posts plus 700 posts of curated links). That’s a lot of writing. Many people start blogging but struggle to get past the first handful of posts. These are the methods I use to keep blogging consistently, year after year.

7 Ways to Improve the Site Speed for Your Online Course

LearnDash

Slow websites can result in loss of course subscriptions and dissatisfied learners. One of the most frequently asked questions we have from users isn’t about our plugin at all. Instead, it’s about their website. Specifically, how they can make it faster. Load times on websites are a big deal—as anyone who has spent any time online as a user knows. The longer it takes for a page to load, the more likely a potential learner is to turn away without registering for your course.

Tips to Avoid Millennials Marketing Hype

Clark Quinn

I received, in my email, a solicitation for a webinar titled 5 Tips to Engage Gen Z and Millennial eLearners in 2020 and Beyond. And, as you might imagine, it tweaked my sensibilities for the worse. My initial reaction is to provide, as a palliative, tips to avoid millennials marketing hype. The content starts off with this scintillating line: “if you’re searching for current, new ways to engage people online and keep your business thriving, look to your youngest learners.”

Best Video Hosting Solutions for Online Courses

Thinking Transformation

Clark Quinn

This pandemic has led to everyone scrambling to work digitally. And it’s not really a transformation (which shouldn’t be ‘digital first’), but rather just ‘move what we do online’. And that’s understandable. Over time, however, I think we want to shift our mindset. And, I think a previous exercise in thinking transformation is valuable here. I’m talking mobile. When I originally was talking about mobile, I was doing so from a perspective of augmenting our brains.

How LMS can help with Skill Management? - Gyrus

Gyrus

It is not training, but skills that allow people to succeed in their job, but skills. Employees may be compelled to attend training classes after training class, and they may even pass tests. However, while the trainer may be satisfied that his trainees have ‘learned’ what he was teaching them, it does not necessarily mean that they would be able to implement what they have learned in the real-life situations that they would be confronted by during everyday work.
